What is a trade show?

At a trade show, exhibitors showcase their products and services, offering these at wholesale cost to visitors. This means that products are sold in bulk, and at a lower price than the RRP. Visitors (retailers) are then able to sell these products on in their stores. As a trade show, Glee is a hub for face-to-face trading and networking.
